Staunton, December 9 – Vladimir Putin has assembled “hundreds of Russian T-64 ad T-62M tanks and thousands of military vehicles” only 18 kilometers from the Russian-Ukrainian border in the environs of Kamensk-Shakhtinsk of Rostov Oblast. All this can be seen on Google Earth photographs, Igor Eidman says on Facebook a few hours ago.
“At any moment,” the Russian sociologist and commentator for Deutsche Welle says, this force can “move into Ukraine.” But as this is happening, the West is continuing to deal with Moscow as if nothing out of the ordinary were occurring, talking about North Flow, American sanctions, and recent contacts between Trump and Putin at the G20 meeting (facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=2152134674849500&id=100001589654713).
This is an old, old story as Winston Churchill might have put it and in fact did. The same pattern occurred “before the beginning of Nazi miliary expansion in Europe. Everyone saw what was happening but gave the impression that nothing extraordinary was happening. They feared to look truth in the face.”
Tragically, it appears, exactly the same thing is happening again, Eidman suggests.
